6 Feb (Fri): Workshop for Nature Guides - Fishes

The Fishy Workshop
by the Leafmonkey Workshop

What's so fishy?
Well the workshop is all about marine fishes in our Singapore shores and waters! This workshop is for existing guides and those interested in becoming nature guides to learn how to effectively share stories and information about our marine fishes.

The focus of this workshop is on connecting ordinary people with nature. If you are a nature guide and have been struggling, trying to digest and convert biological facts to fun stories for your visitors, this workshop is for you!

This workshop aims to bring experienced and new nature guides together to brainstorm ideas. Let's learn from one another, and come up with new ways to share our passion.

Be prepared to work hard, have fun, make new friends and definitely learn new ways of looking at guiding and our wild places.

To be a nature guide it is important to make nature interesting. Not just fun, but to actually understand the area, express what is really going on. Not just know the facts, but to know the story. The workshop sounds interesting. I am just starting to learn about the marine environment for my own guiding in Namibia.
